Some Manchester United fans have been left to fume at an update involving Edinson Cavani.
As per Argentinian news outlet Olé, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team would like to renew the striker’s current deal at Old Trafford.
This is despite the veteran striker being 34 years of age, with much younger talents like Mason Greenwood able to play in his position, who may find their pathway for a regular starting place blocked by Cavani.
The Uruguay international has been suffering with various injury problems in recent times and has not scored for the Red Devils in over two months now (Transfermarkt), so the decision to potentially reward him with a new contract does seem a little strange.
Of course, Cavani can still be world class on his day, but maybe it is time for MUFC to head in another direction in the transfer market.
Manchester United fans on Cavani update
These Man Utd supporters fumed upon reading the update on Twitter, with one fan even going as far as to claim that it was ‘nonsense’:
“Nonsense, the game against Brighton showed why we need to give Greenwood more chance to play central. Cavani is already feeling tired. Let him go, we need young blood in that position.”
“If he is considering, then it would be shameful for us to offer him an extension”
“This club is dead man, Mata, Jones and now Cavani”
“Worrying that we’re STILL trying to convince players to stay. And 34 years as well”
“We are actually finished as a club.”
